Default I need help for my Mod

I'm making my first mod for WW. I've already made two new races (Aspians and Pirates), plus the spaceships to go with the races, loads of new artifacts and other items/systems (including one point defense weapon), and a few new quests including DOZENS of new mercenaries for hire.

Without the GIMP or Photoshop (only Jasc Paint Shop Pro and Ulead Photo Impact), I'm finding it extremely difficult to make spaceship graphics. Does anyone know if Paint Shop Pro or Photo Impact can be used to make ship graphics? Or will I have to get another program for it?

So basically, what I'd LOVE is someone to help me make graphics (and music and sounds, as well). If you could say here if you would like to help me, and contact me at lordvader94@gmail.com and then I can send you the info on the graphics (or sounds/music) I need, and then HOPEFULLY one of you guys can make the graphics, and send me it via e-mail. I'd really appreciate it.

I could help with some music. (I can't draw at all though)
I'm already doing some for someone else's mods, but would also love to help with yours.
The more mods the merrier ;-)
I'll send you an email.

You can use PSP to make ship graphics. I'm quite sure it can output 32-bit (RGBA) .tga files as it's a very common file format. However, I have not used it myself.

OK... when I tried doing the graphics a few days ago, I could make it but then when I saved it as a .tga file, it would merge all the layers. Perhaps I was doing it wrong. I'll try it again.

Actually I think I was wrong. I don't think I listened (or read) closely to the Mod-Making Guide to the Galaxy.

BTW, when are you going to do a weapons help file in that guide? Or maybe phalgm could do it if he has spare time.

I keep putting that off... Maybe next month if I remember (We're trying to submit something to IGF with the deadline being 9/30, and I'm shipping another game at work that's kept me really busy for the last year)

Default Ship Invisibility

Hmm, I was wondering if it's possible to make completely invisible spaceships by simply making a completely black/blank alpha channel on the ship graphics. Maybe Fingers could help? I'll try it soon anyway.

Well, i don't mod all that much but the problem i see is that enemy ships wouldnt know its invisible so if you have a three way battle the ai would just attack it.

I wonder what would happen once the shields are down and the missiles are trying to crash into the solid part of the hull. If they can never hit white on the alpha layer, I'm not sure they'd ever be able to hit. They might be able to knock down shields, but maybe not finish the ship off.
